Create Different Profiles

Hi all!

I started using Firefox a few months ago to try and get away from Chrome (great move!). I use it a lot for work, but also a fair amount for personal use. Is it possible to create different ‘profiles’ on your account?

For example, I would like to use the Sync feature to sync my work Bookmarks to my phone and PC, but I want to keep those separate from my personal ones. Allowing Firefox to toggle between a work profile and personal profile would help this out.

I’m using Firefox for PC and iOS.

Thanks Casey

Note: When you open the browser, it will automatically load the 'default' profile.

To load a different profile, you need to go thru the Profile Manager or create a shortcut.

Example: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox_Current\firefox.exe" -P Work
